Cara Milne-Redhead: ‘We don’t underestimate anyone’

Cara Milne-Redhead, a midfielder for Newcastle United Women, emphasizes that the team doesn’t underestimate any opponents.

Newcastle United Women lead the FA Women’s National League Northern Premier Division by five points, unbeaten in over a year. Despite their strong position, they remain wary of Halifax, a team known for causing upsets in the division.

“It’s very much a one-game-at-a-time mentality.” said Cara Milne-Redhead, in an interview that will be featured in Sunday’s matchday program for Newcastle United Women.

“You can’t underestimate people in this league. We haven’t played Halifax yet but we know that they took points off the top three teams last season.

“Everyone in this league has something to give and we can’t underestimate them at all. We will be thinking about their strengths and where we can exploit them and go from there.”

Cara Milne-Redhead, who joined Newcastle Women from Coventry United Women in January 2022, is now approximately a year into her tenure. She describes the environment created by Coach Langley as the best she has encountered in her career.

“I think the togetherness in our group is fantastic.” she added. “I’d probably say it’s the best team I’ve been in in terms of togetherness.

“We know how competitive it is and when the team comes out and you see yourself not starting or in the 16 it’s frustrating. I think that’s natural – it would be weird if you weren’t.

“But everyone is good at supporting one another. I think the fact that we are so competitive is very good. You are playing against the best players in the league in training. The togetherness is fantastic.”
